thresholds
Thresholds

“For both Titles I and II, HRSA requires that funds be allocated to the six core categories of Ambulatory Medical Care, Case Management Services, Mental Health Services, Drug Reimbursement, Substance Abuse Services (inpatient & outpatient) and Oral Health or to explain how these services are funded through other sources.”1

Thresholds continued

“The Texas Department of State Health Services requires that all Ryan White Title II Planning Assemblies establish minimum funding thresholds for each of the HRSA core service categories to ensure minimum funds required to preserve the current level of services… Minimum funding thresholds must be submitted to and approved by DSHS Planning staff.”1

what is a threshold
What is a threshold
  • “A minimum funding threshold is the minimum dollar amount needed to adequately provide the service.”1

allocating based on thresholds
Allocating based on thresholds
  • The minimum allocation to a service category is the determined threshold
  • If the allocation is less than the threshold, it must be well documented and justified as to why
  • EFA: must be allocated at sub-category level (utilities, food, medication)
threshold calculation

Thresholds
  • Ambulatory / Outpatient Medical Care: $29,403.02
  • Drug Reimbursement: $23,545.28
  • Oral Health: $17,555.36
  • Case Management: $261,269.04
  • Mental Health: $3,870.23
  • Substance Abuse: $3,250.99
2006 2007 allocations
2006-2007 Allocations
  • Operating under the assumption of flat funding from 2005-2006
  • Total allocation to HSDA: $295,375
  • $233,821 RW
  • $61,554 SS
06 07 ambulatory outpatient medical care 1
06-07 Ambulatory Outpatient Medical Care (1)
  • $25,000 total, all from RW
  • Threshold set at $29,403.02. This is level funded from 05-06. Based on historic data of utilization and expenditures, funding the threshold would result in surplus funds at the end of the grant year. Additionally, a Federally Qualified Health Center provides care at reduced cost. If there is a reduction in overall funds to the HSDA, funds will be taken from Food Bank, Health Insurance, and then Transportation, in that order, to fund this category.
06 07 food bank 2
06-07 Food Bank (2)
  • $2,500 total, all from SS
  • This is a decrease from 05-06 because of the need to fund core categories and other services. There is not as much need for funds as before because of arrangements with community food bank and other community resources. This category will be cut 100% first to fund the core services if there is an overall reduction in funds to the HSDA.
06 07 drug reimbursement 3
06-07 Drug Reimbursement (3)
  • $23,546 total, all from SS
  • Threshold set at $23,545.28. Funded at threshold due to trends in utilization data, and to accommodate incoming clients. If there is a reduction in overall funds to the HSDA, funds will be taken from Food Bank, Health Insurance, and then Transportation, in that order, to fund this category.
06 07 transportation 4
06-07 Transportation (4)
  • $23,380 total
  • $4,743 RW + $18,637 SS
  • This is a decrease from 05-06 because of the need to fund core categories and other services. There were also changes in transportation patterns in the area, primarily less transportation to Houston to access dental clinic. This category will be cut 100% third to fund the core services if there is an overall reduction in funds to the HSDA.
06 07 oral health 5
06-07 Oral Health (5)
  • $8,000 total, all from SS
  • Threshold set at $17,555.36. Threshold is based on an estimated utilization of all clients accessing a local dentist that charges. In reality, most clients access free clinic in Houston, thus, not fully funding threshold. Also, historic utilization data indicate that the real level of need is below that of the calculated threshold. If there is a reduction in overall funds to the HSDA, funds will be taken from Food Bank, Health Insurance, and then Transportation, in that order, to fund this category.
06 07 case management 8
06-07 Case Management (8)
  • $204,078 total, all from RW
  • Threshold set at $261,269.04. Not funding at threshold because case management reaches a marginal cost, it does not cost more for case managers to see a few additional clients. The funding does include a 3% cost of living increase over 05-06. If there is a reduction in overall funds to the HSDA, funds will be taken from Food Bank, Health Insurance, and then Transportation, in that order, to fund this category.
06 07 substance abuse 12
06-07 Substance Abuse (12)
  • $0 allocated
  • Threshold set at $3,250.99 for substance abuse (not differentiated between inpatient or outpatient). Threshold calculated on estimate of cost for one intensive inpatient detox. Other community resources are available that meet the need of this service. There is no historic utilization data and little to no expression of need for the service.
06 07 health insurance 15
06-07 Health Insurance (15)
  • $5,000 total, all from SS
  • This funding level is a slight decrease from 05-06 because funds needed to be dispersed into other categories. This category will be cut 100% second to fund the core services if there is an overall reduction in funds to the HSDA.
06 07 mental health 21
06-07 Mental Health (21)
  • $3,871 total, all from SS
  • Threshold set at $3,870.23. Fully funding at threshold. Clients will need some access to counseling services and some psychiatric services no longer available at MHMR due to funding cuts at MHMR. If there is a reduction in overall funds to the HSDA, funds will be taken from Food Bank, Health Insurance, and then Transportation, in that order, to fund this category.

comments
Comments
  • Items to include: service category, suggested amount, reason for amount
  • If it is a core service and reducing the amount, must take into consideration where additional resources will fill the gap between threshold and allocation
